Officina Armare has unveiled the design to an 85-meter superyacht concept called Project ‘Armand’. The 85-meter vessel is envisioned with an internal GT of around 2,500.
Taking cues from automotive design, Armand cuts a sleek silhouette with long, elegant lines and a sharp pointed bow, with onboard highlights that include a virtual-reality main saloon, an outdoor cinema and a dedicated “man cave” on the lower deck.
Accommodation is for 18 guests and 21 crew, not including the two-story owner’s penthouse situated on the bridge deck and sundeck. The owner’s cabin comes with its own “intimate lounge” complete with a wine cellar and smoking room. There is a large transverse-oriented pool on the aft main deck which has an infinity-edge quality. The infinity pool is situated on main aft deck with amphi-styled sunbathing areas which give guests freedom of space for sunbathing and comfortably lounging with breathtaking views. As a result of its location, guests have unhindered vistas of the locale they are in. The main saloon is where Project Armand’s “groundbreaking innovations” come into play. Designed with a glass concave structure integrated with LED screens, the yacht can create a “180-degree virtual environment […] for hosting extravagant parties, observing the Serengeti in the middle of the ocean or simply watching a Grand Prix race.”
The upper aft deck is home to al-fresco dining for the yacht’s guests. A large round stone table comfortably seats more than 12 at a time. The upper aft deck plays host to an impressive outdoor dining area where guests can gather and experience fine dining while watching the sun set over your current locale.
Down on the lower deck aft, the traditional beach club has given way to what Offincina Armare terms, the ‘Man Cave’. The Man Cave at sea, nestled on the lower aft deck of Project Armand, is a trio of experiences awaiting your discovery. First, indulge in the lavish lounge an oasis of relaxation and sophistication where you can unwind and rejuvenate. Second, venture into the depths of the underwater world with the dedicated diving station, providing unparalleled access to mesmerizing marine ecosystems.
And finally, witness the marvel of engineering as the floating tender garage houses the prestigious U-Boat Worx SuperSub submersible, tender and toys, ready to embark on underwater adventures or transport you to hidden coves. This exclusive enclave is designed to redefine luxury leisure and cater to the most discerning explorers.
Performance-wise, Project Armand is equipped with contemporary technologies designed to reduce consumption, including a highly efficient hull; diesel electric propulsion with fossil and non-fossil fuel technology.
